Directed by Chris Addison and written by Jac Schaeffer the film sees Hathaway and Wilson as female scam artists, one low rent and the other high class, who team up to take down the dirty rotten men who have wronged them. Tim Blake Nelson, Alex Sharp, Ingrid Oliver, and Emma Davies also star. Wilson and Roger Birnbaum produced with Cave 76 Productions and Camp Sugar Production.
The Hustle had previously been given an R-rating by the Motion Picture Association of America, but successfully overturned the rating to earn a more box-office friendly PG-13 for “Crude Sexual Content and Language.”
The comedy will have a tough battle at the box office its opening weekend as it goes against the Warner Bros. mystery comedy Pokémon: Detective Pikachu starring Ryan Reynolds in the titular role, as well as the Robert Rodriguez-produced animated film Uglydolls based on the toy line of the same name. The Hustle will hit theaters on May 10.
